Textile fragment with plants and an interlacing vine

Details

  • Catalogue text

    At right angles to the selvedge is a wide band with a continuous, white, interlacing vine on red and blue ground, followed by a narrow band with a white, curving line, a row of dots, and a sawtooth edge. In addition there is an overall design of small, red and white plants. The blue background of this design is almost entirely covered with white, swirling lines.

    Selvedge and remains of stitching. The reverse shows more dye saturation for the blue than the surface.
